Archibald saying they got dragged into the long ball by us, yet we weren't playing constant long balls and started the game passing the ball around the pitch and had them pinned back into their own half the first 5 mins. From what I saw they had that tactic right from the off, long balls fired over the top for Sammon or down the channels for their wingers, had nothing to do with Livi that they played like that.
They may have concentrated too much on the physical side though, and maybe that affected their game, they were too busy elbowing and barging us to try and play football. A studs up challenge only got a yellow card too, Thomson was brutal in his officiating.
That's twice we've played them and been the better team, but their away form is awful, so maybe they'll be better at home, not really worried about them though, our away form is excellent, we score more goals away from home too and I can't see us not scoring on Sunday, hopefully we'll get the first goal and put some more pressure on them and get their fans moaning at them too, just to drive their low moral down further.
My only concern is us having enough players to finish the job, we're down to the last 15 and some of them will be carrying knocks, Miller got elbowed all night, and Longridge, Thompson and Robinson had some sore ones too. Rafa has a cruciate ligament injury so he's def out. These play offs have been brutal, I can see how the 3rd and 4th place teams run out of steam by the final, it takes a lot out of the players physically draining and having to contend with lots of knocks in a short recovery period.
We're almost there though, one final push, if anyone can do it we can, our players will give it their all.
